Digital initiatives come in many flavors and vary widely, but they do have one thing in common and that’s data.

One quick look at leading companies today and it’s easy to see they aren’t just technology-centric companies, but data-centric ones. The challenge for most companies is how to make data management simple and efficient.

The COVID-19 pandemic introduced additional complexities of managing, backing up, and recovering data as businesses rushed to adopt new cloud applications and accommodate a workforce that shifted from the office to the home. Working from home has not only become the norm but the preferred work mode, which means millions of devices and data sources continue to connect to corporate networks across the globe.
